1. Sign in to Voluum.

2. Go to Landers. The Landers view will show up.

5. Save the Voluum CSV template locally on your machine.




 















II. Fill out the Template with Your Landers


Once you have got the CSV template that is suitable for the Voluum's data structure, you need to fill it out with data:


 
  
    
                     


1. Open the downloaded Voluum template with a CSV editor that works best for you.


Voluum Note: Each property of the lander needs to be separated with a semicolon.

 

  • If you edit the CSV file in one of the text editors, you will be able to see the semicolons while editing it.
  • If you edit the CSV file with Excel, you need to pay attention to the delimiter setting set locally on your machine. If Excel uses as separators semicolons, then each property is located in a separate Excel column. 


2. Add entries for your new landers following basic rules listed below:

2a. The file must be properly formatted CSV and saved using UTF-8 character encoding.


2b. One CSV file can contain up to 250 landers. It means that there should be up to 251 rows in the file - the first row is dedicated for a description of columns.

2c. One lander is represented on a separate row in the CSV file.

2d. In the file, each row must end with a line break.

2e. Each column must be separated with a semicolon.

2f. Offer's properties are added according to a certain pattern delivered within the Voluum template.


Before you start editing the CSV template, it is highly recommended to read more about the Voluum's data structure and how the landers should be added to the CSV file:

2g. Note that only certain pieces of information are required and they are associated with the required fields in the offer's form in Voluum. Other properties might remain blank. Howver, i
f you leave the optional properties blank in the CSV file, the values of the properties will be respectively overridden with the default Voluum's values. For example, if you leave the Country code property blank in the file, the Country setting in Voluum will be set to Global.

Lander's name: {your_unique_custom_name} ; # Property required 

Lander's URL:
{your_offer_URL} ; # Property required 
 

Number of offers:
{number_of_offers_for_the_lander} ; 
# If blank, the number of offers will be set to 1

Country: {two-letter_country_code} ; # If blank, the value will be set to Global 

Tags
: {tags_separated_by_spaces} ;
